(MENAFN- The Peninsula) QNA
DOHA: The State of Qatar strongly condemned the storming by hundreds of settlers of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and performing Talmudic rituals under the protection of the Israeli occupation police, considering it a flagrant violation of international law and a provocation to the feelings of Muslims around the world, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today.
The statement warned that the continuation of serious violations and provocative practices in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque clearly reveals the desire of the occupation to direct the conflict into a religious war, and stressed the need for the international community to shoulder its moral and legal responsibilities towards Jerusalem and its holy sites.
The ministry reiterated the firm position of the State of Qatar on the justice of the Palestinian cause, the legitimate rights of the brotherly Palestinian people, and the establishment of their independent state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
